country's success. on education, the president of the united states has an opportunity to strengthen our classrooms and recommit to public education in this country, our teachers, so we can compete in a global market. now, for the republicans, they have vilified all of these institutions. they think that tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation is exactly how we should run the country, and that's it. president obama actually accomplished a heck of a lot in his first term. but there is so much more he can do on a number of important issues facing our country in the second term. we are a center-left country. we are progressive. progressives are in the majority. we have to think like that as a movement. we have to think like that as a people. and the chatter across the street, we learned one thing about those folks during the 2012 election. they lie. they do a pretty good job of it. so when we start going down the road of immigration reform and climate change and fair taxation and public education, we'll get plenty of lies from the right, because they're damn good at it. but we have th

? >> the strategy on our side is what it has been all along, which is to educate, inform and organize and mobilize people at the grassroots who understand that reproductive freedom and choice is a fundamental right of women and that women's rights are human rights and we have to always be vigilant and fight against those who would take away that right. and i think, you know, when i became president of the organization in 1984-85, the passion was on the anti-abortion side. i think this last election in 2012 shows that the country has moved to understand that reproductive choices, reproductive decision making, is the purview of women. it's a personal, private, intimate right that needs to be outside of the realm of government, and that people voted, women were a factor in the election of president obama this year, and it was in large part because they saw the threat of -- to their rights, their fundamental right to equality, in the threat to their right to choose. >> kate michaelman, thanks so much. we'll be right back. mom's oven-baked tastes straight from the microwave. like oven-roas

medicare, education and programs middle class families depend on. the temporary nature of the increase is somewhat troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our ded debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy

meese is an educated man who went to law school at berkeley, very close to ronald reagan before and during the reagan presidency. reagan made him attorney general but ed meese was forced to resign that office in scandal, back in the era when the words republican and attorney general almost always equalled scandal. president nixon's attorney general having been the first and only attorney general who was convicted of a crime and had to serve time for it. while ed meese was attorney general he became one of the very few and very lucky guys who got to watch a lot of porn and get paid for it. in 1984, reagan pointed the attorney general to head the attorney general's commission on pornography, which meant that for two years, ed meese got to look at gay porn, straight porn, all the porn he could possibly get his hands on, which as attorney general was a lot of porn. and after drowning in porn for two years, and getting paid for it, ed meese issued an almost 2,000 page report that reached this conclusion. although the evidence may be slim, we nevertheless now know enough to conclude that
